Artist in Residence Program

The City of Waterloo Artist in Residence program is an initiative of the culture plan. The program offers on-going opportunities for artists to partner with the City of Waterloo to deliver dynamic community arts to citizens of all ages, abilities, and experience with the arts. 

The 2018 Artist in Residence program will be hosted in Waterloo Park to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the park. As always, the program will run from June to September and will close on Culture Days weekend. 

Applications are now open. Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to apply, including painters, textile artists, musicians, sculptors, performers, photographers, printmakers, those working in film and video, writers, and conceptual and installation art. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on March 30, 2018.
